VIDEO: Dan Crenshaw Responds To Critics, Says It’s Time To ‘Take Control Of Narrative’ On Red Flag Laws

Maybe we should hear him out?

Published

Rep. Dan Crenshaw has received a lot of negative feedback from his response to the two mass shootings that took place in El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio over a week ago, but he’s not backing down from what he said that stirred up all the controversy, opting instead to clarify what his remarks meant.

Here’s what Crenshaw had to say about the blowback via The Daily Wire:

“Earlier this week, President [Donald] Trump indicated his support for something called red flag laws. I stated on Twitter that maybe we should consider them at the state level, maybe we should have a conversation about it, and it should be a conversation,” Crenshaw said. “Unfortunately, that’s not what happened.”

“Clearly even the words ‘red flag law’ just emotionally triggered a lot of people, made you guys really mad at me. It seemed that no amount of explanation was able to quell your fears or convince you otherwise, convince you that somehow the president and I had not betrayed you,” Crenshaw said. “That is not true, of course, and it’s sad that many of you think that, it really is.”

“When we say ‘red flag laws,’ you guys stop listening,” he continued. “You can’t hear what we’re suggesting because, understandably, you automatically assume that we’re just agreeing with the left’s version of that law and we all know that the left’s version would not be good, it would not protect due process. But as it turns out, that isn’t what we’re talking about at all.”

Crenshaw went on to explain, “Making sure that due process could not be abused is at the heart of any conservative solution to the supposed red flag laws. In our version of what those would look like, I’ve laid out specific safeguards that would have to be in place for us to support any type of red flag law.”

Crenshaw went on to give a few examples such as the requirement of clear and convincing evidence, punishment for false accusations, right to attorney and cross-examination, and limited standing to accuse.

“Here’s the thing, I understand your fears about bad red flag laws. Red flag law is a general concept. There could be good ones and there can be bad ones. You should be against the bad ones, as I am.”

Crenshaw concluded by stating, “The whole purpose of what the president did, and what I am doing, in trying to start a conversation about this is so that we take control of the narrative and propose solutions that actually do protect due process rights.[Let’s] ensure that we aren’t on the sidelines when Democrats are proposing blatantly unconstitutional laws that would not protect your due process.”

“It’s a conversation that conservatives have actually been having for a very long time. It’s not new at all and it definitely does not deserve the emotional reaction that it has gotten. We are better than that. Let’s be better than that.”

Here’s where a lot of conservatives go wrong on this issue, and to be honest, the reason they go wrong is the fault of greedy, gun hating leftists. There’s something that needs to be done in order to ensure that the chances of these mass shootings are reduced.

Unlike what the left says, there’s no way to eliminate them entirely. Unfortunately, mankind has been corrupted since the fall of Adam and Eve and the only thing that can renew the heart and spirit that leads to such great acts of evil is the gospel of Jesus Christ.

So aside from that, the way we can make folks the safest is to at least have a conversation about what can be done in this case that will not involve infringing on someone’s right to own a firearm.

It’s a complicated matter, but it’s a discussion we need to have, otherwise, eventually, the left will have the conversation for us after folks have grown tired of the violence, and we may not like how that plays out.

Infamous ‘Tic Tac’ UFO Spotted Clear Across The Atlantic

And just days ahead of the Pentagon’s big disclosure.

Published

The US government, in an unprecedented move, is set to release a treasure trove of previously-classified data to Congress and the public at the end of the month, all regarding one of the most mysterious phenomenon in the world:  UFO’s. This disclosure comes after the military, somewhat surprisingly, began divulging the fact that they had been in pursuit of, and had video of, a number of incidents that seemed to defy both logic and physics.  The most famous of the incidents is known colloquially as the “Nimitz Tic Tac” event, and is perhaps the most well-documented and credible UFO sightings of all time. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uXmQHwmNa_4 Now, just a few days before the Pentagon drops their much-anticipated report, an eerily similar incident is being reported thousands of miles away from the original sighting. The UFO resembling a “white Tic Tac” spotted in 2004 by Former U.S. Navy pilot Cmdr. David Fravor while on duty at the USS Nimitz is back – but this time it’s floating over England. Pictures of the notorious UFO were snapped by Lucy Jane Castle, from Hinckley in south-west Leicestershire, who managed to grab a snap of the unexplained object and posted it on a UFO hunter’s Facebook page, which was found by the Daily Star. “It was hovering for a while and within a blink of an eye it had gone,” Castle said. “Never seen anything like this before in that shape… Quickly took a picture while it was very still and within a blink of an eye it disappeared.” The photo wasn’t terribly convincing, however. https://twitter.com/SusanFensten/status/1406359808257765380?s=20 The Pentagon’s UFO report is expected to hit the headlines around June 29th.

Swing State Getting Serious, Dumping 100K Off of Voter Rolls

This is the first such cleanup in YEARS.

Published

Over the course of the next several years, America is going to be taking a good hard look at how she handles elections, and things are likely to get somewhat ugly in the process. That’s because we’ve allowed the false dichotomy of the two-party system to stake claims to how we vote.  On the left, a free-for-all.  On the right, a far more serious application of election laws that could be commandeered by ne’er-do-wells looking to massage the electoral results. So, as we head to the polls in 2022 and 2024, we will do so under the auspices of angst, almost undoubtedly, after having seen a great deal of fussing and fudging of the system itself. In Georgia, a massive cleanup of the voter rolls are now underway, for example. Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger intends to remove 101,789 “obsolete and outdated” voter files from the state’s voter registration rolls, his office announced. “Making sure Georgia’s voter rolls are up to date is key to ensuring the integrity of our elections,” Raffensperger said in a statement. “That is why I fought and beat Stacey Abrams in court in 2019 to remove nearly 300,000 obsolete voter files before the November election, and will do so again this year. Bottom line, there is no legitimate reason to keep ineligible voters on the rolls.” The more than 100,000 voter files set to be removed include 67,286 voter files linked to a National Change of Address form submitted to the U.S. Postal Service; 34,227 voter files that had election mail returned to sender; and nearly 300 that had no contact with elections official for two general elections. This is the first serious sanitation attempt since 2019, and has already seen over 18,000 dead Georgians removed from the rolls.
